Wow, Microsoft gets to show off Assassin's Creed Unity on their conference? That's an interesting twist.
Sony is doing Far Cry it seems

I hope there are some good surprises and trailers today!

There's no doubt about it. Sony, in particular, has been extremely secretive leading up to this year's E3. I'm expecting good things. In yesterday's Bonus Round on GameTrailers, Jeff Gerstmann also mentioned that the game he was the most excited about this E3 was one he couldn't talk about, which is promising.

That was Mortal Kombat X, which wasn't announced when they recorded those during judges week.   Jeff loves MK.

But they play nothing alike! Not even slightly! That's why I mentioned those crazy examples above. If you are very selective in how you distill them (Deus Ex and Doom: First person shooter. Baldur's Gate and Diablo: RPG) their genres stop having any meaning at all. Would you ever tell someone "if you like Infamous, you're going to like Watch Dogs", or vice versa? Of course not! It's not a valid comparison. The similarities between the two games are superficial at best. They both take place in an open world, but if that's a genre, then it's worthless as a way to describe the game, and what's the bloody point then?
They play about as close to each other as Saints Row 3 did to Saints Row 4.

And? I haven't played either of those games, so I have no point of comparison. If you've got a point, feel free to expand upon it so that we're on the same level here.

Really?  You should as they were quite good.  PC version of 4 is a good port too.   SR3 was an over the top GTA style game. In SR4 your character got Infamous style super powers including a super speed very similar to the one you see in Infamous:SS.

One could argue they are both open world super hero games.  Aiden is just more Batman while Delsin is an X-man, but Aiden definitely has gadget level super powers, I mean he can black out an entire city never mind all the small things he can do like exploding pipes etc.

Quote from: jztemple2 on June 09, 2014, 02:49:30 AM

I have another question, if folks don't mind addressing it. I like open world games particularly because there are a number of things to do; not only side quests, but just activities. I'm thinking like the hunting tasks in Far Cry 3, blowing up water towers in Just Cause 2, steal and selling cars in all the GTA games, things like that. The Watch Dogs promotion materials make it sound like there is a lot of these activities in WD, but are they fun? I didn't play cards in Red Dead Redemption more than a couple of times because there was nothing really interesting in it, or bowling in GTA4. Neither was fun after you got over the novelty. Are the diversions in Watch Dogs fun after the novelty has worn off?

The game is loaded with side content.  There's the in world stuff like random crimes to stop, criminal convoys, fixer missions, gang hideouts, and ctos towers.  Then there's the betting games: poker, drinking, chess, slots, 3 card monte.  Then there's the virtual games and trips, like 6 of these.  Im probably missing some tasks too.

Being a vigilante good guy is a nice change from GTA -- you're still stealing cars and doing other bad stuff... but with heart! slywink I'm enjoying the invasion multiplayer style way more than I expected to, both on offense and on defense. I also really like the freedom I feel I have in how I approach missions and side missions. Most of the time I don't feel on rails, and I can choose my own balance of stealth, hacking, and shooty shooty.

I feel it's super inconsistent with the presentation though.  I think Sleeping Dogs handled things a lot better with the under cover cop main character.

This game is nothing like Infamous though, so that's not really a good comparison when talking about quality. Watch Dogs is far more ambitious in what it's trying to do, while Infamous could focus on perfecting its core gameplay to a much larger degree.

And characters.  Good guy Delsin is a way cooler vigilante than Aiden.

Also, who would have thought Wolfenstein would have way better characters than Watchdogs?

This is great news.

Yeah, this should be good for the long-term health of the game.  It's a fun game but like most FPS's their Steam player numbers have continued to drop since it launched.

Quote from: forgeforsaken on February 11, 2014, 09:13:34 PM

Fun game, but could easily be improved by getting rid of aim down sites and adding alt fire.

Hmm, but half the game is about customizing your weapons to do exactly what you want, so you just make your loadout with the exact firing/projectile types you like and switch weapons.  With alt firing modes I think a lot of players usually only used the one mode they prefer. 

Plus, part of the customization includes adding sights, scopes, etc. and I know I used sights all the time on my medium range guns.

Sights could easily be a selectable alt fire, but more my problem with ADS isn't using sights for zoom, bur rather the slow down movement and increase gun accuracy.  That ADS mechanic has just become over prevalent in FPS.

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

Are you buying games for the PC instead?  We just saw the release of Wolfenstein (fantastic), Watchdogs, and Transistor.
This years a bit of a mess with all the delays, but there's still a bunch of stuff coming out this fall.  Destiny being probably the biggest name of the bunch.

Nope. Not really interested in Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs didn't pass the review muster for me. I don't even know what Transistor is. Part of it is that I figure those titles will be cheap/free on PSN+ next year so I haven't pulled the trigger on them.

Destiny I am very interested in.

Basically if it's not an AAA title (or specific sports game I want), I can't be bothered anymore. Priorities change with age, I guess.
I guess your decisions are your own and that's all well and good, but don't bitch that there aren't any games, that's three good to fantastic games that have come out in the past two weeks.

One could hope that they would have the resources to make platform specific versions.

It's still diluting the resources.

With Titanfall, the 360 version was outsourced to a completely different company, wasn't it?  Meaning it wouldn't have had any impact on the quality of the XB1 version?

Recent Twitter posts imply it's the same deal with Horizons, and there is a second studio working on the 360 version.

Ok, with the OP out of the way...how weird is it that this is 360 and XB1?  On one hand it's good that MS is still supporting the 360 with first party games, but on the other releasing the same game on both platforms has to somewhat hurt upgrade incentives.  I can't really remember any other first party games being crossgen like that*, that's usually the domain of the 3rd parties.

Also while some of these crossgen games have certainly been good, I'm ready for crossgen to die.  Let's see these new boxes really strut their stuff.  Having to support the 360/PS3 can only be holding some of these titles back.

*just remembered Nintendo did it with Twilight Princess on the Wii/Gamecube.

They actually started using freedom of information act to get the 911 audio of people who called and publish it to their website so people could harass them.  So they are actively trying to intimidate people into not calling 911.
